2 Kings 19:27-28

Context

19:27 I know where you live,

and everything you do. 1 

19:28 Because you rage against me,

and the uproar you create has reached my ears; 2 

I will put my hook in your nose, 3 

and my bridle between your lips,

and I will lead you back the way

you came.”

1 tc Heb “your going out and your coming in.” The MT also has here, “and how you have raged against me.” However, this line is probably dittographic (note the beginning of the next line).

2 tc Heb “and your complacency comes up into my ears.” The parallelism is improved if שַׁאֲנַנְךְ (shaanankh), “your complacency,” is emended to שַׁאֲוַנְךְ (shaavankh), “your uproar.” See M. Cogan and H. Tadmor, II Kings (AB), 237-38.

3 sn The word picture has a parallel in Assyrian sculpture. See M. Cogan and H. Tadmor, II Kings (AB), 238.
